Those lucky enough to attend the Toronto International Film Festival will be the first ones to catch Michael Basset’s “Solomon Kane”, which is a part of the festival’s Midnight Madness line-up on September 16 at the Ryerson Theatre. Until then, check out a new image from the live-action adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s famous character that the studio has sent over.
With SOLOMON KANE, Conan and his other heroes, iconic American writer Robert E. Howard created the genre now known as “SWORD & SORCERY,” in the late 1920s and early 1930s. His work has spawned countless imitators and given rise to his influence in the fantasy genre which can be rivaled only by J.R.R. Tolkien (Lord of the Rings). Now just shy of a decade later, SOLOMON KANE is poised to be the next great film trilogy.
Starring Pete Postlethwaite, James Purefoy, Samuel Roukin, Robert Russell, Ben Steel, Max von Sydow, Philip Waley, Anthony Wilks, Philip Winchester, Jason Flemyng, Patrick Hurd-Wood, Rachel Hurd-Wood, Ryan James, and Alice Krige.
